6th Query answer: It is Jesus, Christ, who is the life and power that takes away the occasion of all wars – the envy, greed, vengeance, and other evils in our hearts. We endeavor always to live in Christ. He reveals God to us as a loving father who gives us rules to protect us. We seek to be loving children in following those rules. None of us participates directly in any military effort, but we recognize that some of our taxes pay for it. We invite others to join us in following the Lord.
As we consider the command “do not kill” along with the concern for equal opportunities for all people, we pray that the elderly, infirm, and unborn will have equal opportunities for life.
